Reviewer's comments

"Well, we all have to recognize the effort from this builder to implement a new music and new animated textures in the pool, and also the flipmap too; but still so, the gameplay is quite poor to recommend this level to another players. It's your choice." - Jose (24-Jan-2018)

"Nothing to do here, but run round and jump in a pool which floods and empties and then go through a gate to the finish trigger. Nice textures though." - Ryan (13-Mar-2016)

"Despite some alright texturing and ambiance choices, I'm afraid I didn't quite get the punchline of what this joke level was trying to get out, as all you really do here is jump into a swimming pool that immediately drains upon entry, before processing to the exit door a few seconds later. So perhaps it could be worth a quick look for some? I don't know..." - Ceamonks890 (08-Dec-2014)

"First of all I have to thank Scottie as I never would have downloaded this level if I had to install it myself. Thus, I was able to play it from the rar file and as you never get in danger to needlessly consume much time when the game crashes (I played the first 100 levels without knowing how to unzip levels, so one can say I am already sustained a lot). This particular level turned out better than I thought, as the texturing is faultless - that's not very spectacular though with only a couple of rooms though -, the lighting is OK and I even liked the looping audio. The main idea in this joke level is very cleverly executed and even if this was a debut, one could see the builder has more capabilties for real, not only joke levels. Of course the outfit was not very nice to look at but I liked the rebuilt shotgun even if useless, so I give a point to the (very slightly IMO) underrated second category too. One of the joke levels that is actually worth the download, even if one can get to the finish trigger in nine seconds." - manarch2 (29-Sep-2012)

"All you can do here is look at the nicely done texturing and Lara in a Bikini, pick up a couple extra weapons, empty you magazines, jump into the pool. The pool mysteriously drains and Lara can leave the level. That's all there really is. The sound file was kind of funny, but I don't think it was worth the download." - Blue43 (27-Oct-2011)

"Awesome texturing (as for a joke level) and fine sound (also as for a joke level) cooperate to create rather good atmosphere, as for a joke level. So I can give one extra point for this joke level. All other parts of this joke level are... just like in most of joke levels. SUMMARY: Graphics and sound make this joke level one of better joke levels. If you like joke levels - play this joke level. If you don't like joke levels - don't play this joke level. Simple - as joke levels usually are." - DJ Full (24-Oct-2010)

"A swimmingpool a dive and its over. Nothing else to do here. This time I fail to see the fun though.. ;)" - QRS (25-Jan-2006)

"lol Well an amusing 2 minute long level. Lara in a little swimming costume a swimming pool with nice textures and a catchy bg tune. Nothing to do but dive but it's worth a look even if it's just to hear the funny bg tune." - Aims (05-Nov-2004)

"This is a pretty good joke level since it made me chuckle for 2 seconds. The rooms are well-textured there is an interesting little flipmap and Lara is wearing a special bathing suit for the occasion. It's a joke level that allows you to make fun of yourself because it shows how foolish you really are (that pool is too beautiful to be real. It's nothing but an illusion). But then again the player has been warned by the word 'Warning...'. The music gave a relaxing atmosphere which is exactly what Lara needs after months of raiding tombs." - Sakusha (04-Aug-2004)

"This was quite a laugh with a damned funny background sound and the pool itself. LOL - waste 20 seconds with this one." - Treeble (23-May-2004)

"Very nice pool. Textures looks nice but what happens when Lara jumps in - the water disappears - indeed joke level HA HA HA........" - Yoav (08-Mar-2004)

"A joke-level that can actually be finished... I never thought I'd see the day. This level was actually a little funny - the song in the background was hilarious. I have no idea what it was about but it put a smile on my face. Other than listening to the music and finishing the level in a few seconds there's not much to here. The texturing is quite nice though." - Magnus (29-Jan-2004)

"I always enjoy seeing new joke levels as it's fun to see what the authors can come up with to make us laugh I do usually wish they lasted more than ten seconds though. I actually played this one twice despite the horrible music just to see if I had missed anything because I never used the guns that were lying nearby. I love these short fun levels though and would like to see more of them." - RaiderGirl (07-Oct-2003)

"I think this is not a level but a study or preview of the great StarGate level which prepares the teleporting with the disappearance of the water. But this is a very interesting solution. All you have to do is jump into the water and swimming through the open grate the level finishes. The added sounds are superb the cha-cha-cha was very funny.:-) Note the flash of the pistols this is also a preview for the StarGate." - Obig (15-Sep-2003)

"Cute suit. Nifty tunes. Pay attention to the initial caption. Some joke levels are longer than others. This one is WAY short. But the bathing suit atmosphere and soundtrack are definitely worth the download. It's a fun 30 seconds. Make sure you do a proper swan dive from the diving platform/wedge." - Wendee (03-Sep-2003)

"I thought it was really funny!" - Orbit Dream (18-Aug-2003)

"This is a real joke level. At least I had to laugh at the end. The 'level' itself takes you only seconds: Just jump into the pool - that's it. But I liked it the textures are well done and Lara looks good in her bikini. The author also provides us with some cha-cha music. And now I can't get rid of this catchy tune - haha. It's a 'Lara on vacation'-Level. ;-)" - Tinka (16-Aug-2003)

"Some perky music Lara in a swimsuit a pool and with this warm weather we are having it sure does look invited so take a dive. It IS however a joke level so be aware. 09-08-2003" - Gerty (15-Aug-2003)

"7 rooms a skimpy outfit by LarzBritish a sound file I did not like much and a fun effect as you jump into the water. Oh well - try and exit it in under 10 seconds if you can." - Michael (07-Aug-2003)

"I've seen worse joke levels. This did at least make me smile and Lara's bikini is very fetching. There is of course hardly anything to do other than jump in the pool and the level is over in a few seconds but if you don't mind the download then go ahead and have a fun moment." - Jay (07-Aug-2003)

"Apart from the monotonous music the lack of anything to do was overwhelming even to the novice. As a joke level you get just that one nicely textured room with a swimming pool and a deceptively safe dive into it. Nothing more nothing less." - Sash (05-Aug-2003)

"We have a big room with a swimming pool and a 'tsa tsa' song playing on the background with Lara wearing a swimming suit. The walls have nice textures with tigers and as soon as you fall inside the pool there are flashing words on the walls saying 'Swimming Pool out of order'. The gate opens at Lara's approach and you're done in 11 seconds unless of course you stop to look at the nice textures above. It is of course a joke level but the author warns about it. I don't know what got into the builders lately and give us joke levels but they certainly bring a smile." - Kristina (05-Aug-2003)

"As this is another one of those joke levels - so you can expect it to be unimaginably short but show some nice idea - and the one here had me fooled at first (am not giving it away as I believe others will so what the heck for do I have to repeat what they've said?). The music in the background was hilarious and the 2 or 3 (possibly even 4!) rooms here were rather nicely textured - but as you don't spend here even a minute I can't say that it was the most beautiful experience of my life and rate it like that. A level recommended if you need a break from more complicated levels and if you want to have a short laugh about something - otherwise (a: You don't like joke levels b: You don't have the time to download and play all levels released) don't bother and move on to other levels." - eTux (05-Aug-2003)

"Very saucy swim suit very beautiful pool big guns. This sounds like the beginning of a very bad mob movie but it's not it's a nice joke. Oh I soooooooooo wanted to swim in that pool but...see for yourself. Wonder what I missed though why else the big guns? Oh yeah and when you shoot the guns or machine gun it gives a weird glow." - bERT (05-Aug-2003)
